The news came in an hour ago.

wonfes.jp/info/...

Originally this years summer wonfes was rescheduled to be held as Wonder Festival 2020 [Autumn] on the 1st November, due to the now also postponed summer olympics in tokyo.

This is yet another unwelcome news these days.

Not only does that mean another chance to show new announcements and progress on older figures is gone, but this is also one less opportunity for all those garage kit circles out there to be able to sell their kits.

As for figures, the next event which is not cancelled yet would be the Megahobby Expo 2020, planned to be held on the 29th August.

GSC started to host their Wonhobby gallery and Native had also done an exhibition in the past at that time.
Maybe they could follow what fairs will do here and open only for professional visitors and news writer or alot tickets with time slots if until that time events can be held at all.

This is really not a good year.

Edit: The winter wonfes 2021 is not cancelled yet and the date stays the 7th february 2021

What the fuck are the comments here even on about? Literally unrelated to anything written in the post.

Roxas_DesperadoHace 1 mes#77890496Oh that same johnson & johnson who were sued for $775 million because their baby powder cause ovarian cancer? THE SAME COMPANY WHO PUTS ASBESTOS ON BABY POWDER? No thanks. i'm baffled that people these day forget controversy so easily.

I mean I don't think that I've "forgotten" a controversy, and I don't know how correct it is to really come into the comments like that and say something like that to me. If we're being honest, every single medical company is screwing and gouging their customers constantly -- but right now we kind of need them or we're screwed. All I'm doing is stating what one of the largest American medical companies is saying about their medical trials and how they feel like vaccinations will be rolled out. They're trying to fast track, and I guess if you don't want to support Johnson & Johnson then you'll have to wait for a vaccination from someone else?

chapters0Hace 1 mes#77890623doesnt the Megahobby Expo 2020 happen in may usually, did they make it virtual or did they just push it to Aug?

Megahobby expo usually happens twice a year once in may which is the Spring Expo and then in october as Megahobby Expo Autumn.
But due to the summer olympics they consolidated the date into one event to be hosted in august instead.
Which was probably also propmted by summer wonfes moving to november which would have been in direct competition to the megahobby expo.


As for wonfes to go virtual.

We should not forget that the event itself is actually hosted by Kaiyodo and while Gsc is taking up the biggest space in the hall for companies, half of the event space is also dedicated to garage kit circles and smaller companies for whom the booth fees are probably cheaper to have a table there, like Orcatoys or Daiki for example.

Of course, companies could just decide to post news on the date at a given time via twitter and gsc can pull up their wonhobby gallery page and koto their event page.
But we also have heaps of smaller companies who don't maintain a social media account, like Alter(if someone wants to point out to the english facebook page, that one is not officially hosted by them) or don't maintain it well if one is present.
I was actually a bit shocked to learn they do have someone in charge for being a social representee in a stream together with Mika-tan and one from Aniplex.
That must have been around summer wonfes last year.

galablueHace 1 mes#77883606Johnson&Johnson expects that there won't be a vaccine available until Q2 2021, so this does not surprise me. Plus, I doubt theyve been able to manufacture everything and probably have such a bag lock that needs to go into production.

Oh that same johnson & johnson who were sued for $775 million because their baby powder cause ovarian cancer? THE SAME COMPANY WHO PUTS ASBESTOS ON BABY POWDER? No thanks. i'm baffled that people these day forget controversy so easily.

Could they not just post things online as some type of virtual show? I don't see this as really being that bad/big deal.

Lets hope WinterWonFes will be double the scale to compensate for Summer.

I was so hoping that Wonfes wouldn't be cancelled but I understand why completely! It's just that I think everyone wanted one normal thing to happen this year but alas 2020 is a complete write off!!

Hopefully Wonder Festival [winter] will still be held next year and that Megahobby will still be held at the end of this year...
